Before, I go for quality but after giving birth, maliit na sakin yung old clothes and I think it's time to replace my wardrobe so I go for quantity now. Lalo na wala naman kami uniform sa office, ayaw ko naman mag paulit ulit ng damit like weekly, sana at least monthly or every 2 months bago ako mag ulit ng damit. But for jeans and shoes, I go for quality parin. :)

I go for quantity, especially that since college hanggang nag-work ako never ako nag-uniform. And ayoko ng paulit-ulit yung damit ko, so I have an interval of at least two months bago ko mag-ulit ng damit. But for jeans, bags and shoes, I go for quality. Though, may mga shoes ako na from bazaars lang pero di naman agad nasisira kasi di ko naman sila always nagagamit, naka-rotation sila.

i go for quality, becauseit would last long andyou really have to invest in some types of clothes. for example for pants you should consider the cut, denim and how it fits you.i always say that youre jeans can make or break your outfit so this one i go for quality. cardigan is also a good investment, you can buy from zara plus they gowith anything you can wear it for casual days, and even with formal events. for heeled shoes you have to go with quality but for flats i say buy something thats not expensive a lot a stores offer flats for less than 1000, no need to buy something thats too expensive when youre just going around walking around doing errrands. dont forget bags too, go for quality, i still have my moms designer bags that she bought before i was born.

For jeans and shoes, i go for the quality of the item. para naman magamit ng matagal. for tops, hindi naman ako mapili. kahit hindi branded ok na. meron naman kasi na murang tops na matibay rin naman

For office wear (button down, blouse, pants and blazers), I go for quality because I tend to repeat clothes at office. Good quality clothes can last a lifetime with proper care even if used often.

For party/formal dresses and denim jeans, I go for quality also because I don't want to buy and wear a dress just for a single occasion (except for the wedding gown, lol). Denims are wardrobe staples and I don't want to hoard a lot for I don't have a huge closet.  :P That's why I don't have a single bright colored jeans that seems to be fad lately.

For shirts and tops, I go for quality and quantity. I sometimes end up using shirts as pambahay.

For shoes, I go for quantity and quality. I love shoes so I tend to buy a lot but I always make sure that they are of good quality.

when I was younger I usually go for quantity, kung ano kasi uso dun ako. now that I'm older I realized mas important talaga quality, may tendency kasi mura nga pero nakatambak lang din. depende rin siguro sa body type, tulad ko I'm on the heavy side, I can't buy in tiangges kasi mostly free size sila kaya I usually buy pricier items pero with the right size.

i go for quantity, kasi sawain talaga ako sa damit saka most of the time i will only wear it once then pag di ko gusto fitting di ko na sya gagamitin ulit and it's practical for me kasi mga nieces ko magkaka size kami so it's easy na ipamigay sa kanila yung mga damit ko in a way di rin sayang, same goes with my daughter palitan lang kami minsan ng damit oag di na namin gusto.

Depende. Not all with quality is best, so with quantity.

I go for quality first before quantity...I don't shop very often kasi so mas best for me na nakakasiguro ako na matibay ang bibilhin ko...kung pambahay lang pwede na sakin quantity marunong naman ako pumili ng stylish clothes na hindi rin naman mahal ^_^ tama, hindi mo kailangan gumastos ng napakalaki para mag mukhang maayos basta marunong ka lang kumilatis makaka bili ka pa rin ng magandang items na hindi rin naman kamahalan...

Ngayon, nasa quantity side ako kasi nag-aaral ako sa university na walang uniform. Ang goal ko ay wag masyadong umulit ng damit, besides I can't afford quality clothes yet kaya malimit ako sa divi at landmark
I love wedding details!

Quantity.
Kahit cheap yung clothes, thats fine. Mairaos lang! LOL I dont get to wear them again, sort of!  Kung ulitin ko man, medyo matagal pa or the clothing is really comfortable and is easy to pair with anything...  Madali din kasi ako magsawa. Sayang naman kung mahal yung bibilin ko tapos one time ko lang isusuot. haha Arte lang, ayaw ng paulit ulit. hehe pero sa tshirt, tank tops and shorts pwede pa! Wash and wear kumbaga! ;D
I dont go out that much either, and Im not fond of dressing up... so hindi ko din talaga mamamaximize ang gamit. thats why i dont bother spending a chunk amount of my sweldo to buy a single piece of damit thats way over my budget. chos!
Sometimes you turn back. Sometimes you walk away. And sometimes, you find the place you're meant to be, & you stay there.

siguro ang magandang quality na meron ako sa closet ay yung mga leather jackets ko.

when it comes to shoes, bags and jeans, i would go for quality but for tops, acceptable na din for me ang quantity. pero pinipili ko pa din ang binibili ko. medyo pihikan din kasi ako sa clothes, gusto ko yung maganda at mukang mamahalin pa din pag suot kahit na mumurahin lang.

I'd go for both.
I have good quality clothes that has lasted me years of constant wear but is still in good shape. I also buy clothes that are moderately priced, sometimes even insanely cheap. yung mga cheap purchases ko, even if i wear them 2-3x, ok na rin.

When it comes to jeans and shoes I choose quality. Pero for tops, quanitity kasi I only get to wear it a few times. Hirap kasi now with the fast fashion, if you want to have the uso tops mamumulubi ka if you choose quantity lol.
